DM42 rattles

Post by apak63 » Mon Feb 19, 2018 9:58 am

Received my DM42 in good order and am very impressed. One thing is annoying me however. When i turn the machine there is a rattling noise inside the calculator as if there is something loose. So i am a bit worried if this will create problems in the future.

Is this a known issue and if so is there something i can do to resolve it.

with kind regards

Hi there. Glad you're enjoying your DM42 :)

The rattling is something that hasn't been reported before. I would suggest you remove the rear cover by unscrewing the two screws at the top and gently prising the cover away from the front part. Then examine the innards to see if there is something visibly loose. There shouldn't be!

Same for me today.
Ratteling noise inside the newly received DM42...
I opened it, and found one of the B screw completely loose!

Every thing is ok now...
